Prajapati Visva Ashram

Greetings to UK Prajapatio

May 20, 2001

Namaste Vadilo, Bhaio, Baheno and Yuvaano:

We appreciate this opportunity to say a few words on behalf of Prajapati Vishva Ashram to the representatives of all Prajapatio in UK at your AGM today on May 20, 2001.

A lot of you have now been aware of Prajapati Vishva Ashram, mainly through the web site and the Gujarat Internet Connect Program. Prajapati volunteers from all over the world are involved with of Prajapati Vishva Ashram in creating the web site and implementing the two social programs for the last 3 years.

For the past 5 years the world has started living in cyberspace through world wide internet. Therefore, about 4 years ago, the Prajapatio all over the world, created Prajapati Vishva Ashram as a cyberspace platform for all Prajapatio in the world. The residence of Prajapati Vishva Ashram is at the web site noted above.

The Ashram volunteers and access to the program is through the message board on the web site or through the email address noted above. The primary mandate of Prajapati Vishva Ashram is to enable all the Prajapatio in the world to know each other, develop and further historic Prajapati kinship, traditions, customs and dharma, and through joint community ventures remove all the obstacles that have plagued and are still obstructing Prajapatio in their efforts to prosper and be equal to any prosperous fellow human being . After taking care of Prajapatio first, Prajapatio then can help all other fellow human beings to prosper in the same way. All this is to be achieved through the Prajapati Volunteering Aaatma and following and trusting dharma.

With the above large mandate, the volunteers in UK, Canada, South Africa, USA, and India have started two projects to date.

The first project is Gujarat Internet Connection which is meant to bring Prajapatiís largest population base which is Gujarat to communicate with each other in Gujarat and the rest of the Prajapatio outside Gujarat and India. Without this kinship connection between all Prajapatio nothing would ever happen at Prajapati Vishva Ashram. The web site is doing that. Prajapatio in all the five continents can now communicate with each other and if you use the Chat Lounge on the web site a group can communicate with each other.

As you are aware, the web site is continuously being enlarged to accommodate the needs of all Prajapatio.

The second project that has been initiated for the last 3 years is the Education Program.

A survey of Prajapati communities, especially in India, indicated that the Prajapati community was far behind other communities in education. Because of lack of education, there is comparatively more poverty in Prajapati communities.

Lack of education is lack of knowledge which in turn creates more health problems, social problems, relationship problems, development problems and generally provides massive obstacles in life and life progress.

The education program is to do whatever is necessary in Prajapati communities to further education and bring up the employable literacy rate to 100 percent as soon as practically feasible.

†This Education Program has been first initiated in Gujarat where it is most needed.

†At the instigation of Prajapati Vishva Ashram, in February 2001 Gujarat Prajapatio have formed Shree Prajapati International Education Association (SPIEA) to implement this Education Program and also the Gujarat Internet Program which is also being used for schooling children in computers. Through this program one scholarship has been given out for a student to get a 4-year university degree in Information Technology. Three to four more similar scholarships are being processed at the present time. SPIEA is also working on to arrange a WORLD PRAJAPATI YOUTH CONFERENCE in Gujarat with the assistance of Prajapati Vishva Ashram, that means, all Prajapatio in the world.

Prajapati Vishva Ashram is also trying to put in place learning Gujarati and† Ved through the web site.

The success to date of the Gujarat Internet Program and the Education Program has been only possible because Prajapatio all over the world have volunteered to fund-raise at their local samaj levels, work on the web site, travel to Gujarat for structuring the program so that the local samaj can run their own programs to satisfy their own needs.

Prajapati spirit of volunteering has been so strong to date that most of the volunteers have never met each other in person. But the volunteers have come up with 37 donated computers and five university scholarships in a very short time of about 3 years.

Thus. volunteers at Prajapati Vishva Ashram has proven its mandate of working as international organization. As more Prajapati samajo and Prajapati individuals join in as volunteers to do this international samaj seva, our Prajapatio in Gujarat and elsewhere will be able to get out of their atrocious poverty faster and prosper at the same rate as most of the fellow humans.

Saying the above, through this letter Prajapati Vishva Ashram is broadcasting an appeal to all Prajapatio in UK to join Prajapati Vishva Ashram in the above international samaj seva to help your fellow Prajapatio outside your country. You have already started doing this by participating in the fund-raising for computers for Gujarat Internet project on individual and samaj basis.

Shree Chandrakant Dahyabhai Lad of Calgary has been a designated volunteer leader for UK contact representing Prajapati Vishva Ashram for both the computer and education programs. Shree Chandrakantbhai is well known in UK. Some of you know him as he has met you and your associations a number of times in the last three years. Please contact him through email at cdlad@home.com.

By granting this time at your busy AGM all of you have shown continuing supporting spirit for Prajapati Vishva Ashram. We jointly pray today that this sprit grows forever......

Shukriya and Namaskaar to you all........till we meet next time in the cyberspace world of Prajapati Vishva Ashram......Aavjo.....

ALL VOLUNTEERS OF PRAJAPATI VISHVA ASHRAM
